Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

A Fairytale Whodunnit! Parodise, a small world where characters of fairytale lore leave happily ever after... A strange place for sure, but there's obviously a reason why such a world should exist. Sometimes, however, tales run wild. Little Red Riding Hood, for once, has had it with constant delivery of baskets to remote forest cottages. She wanted a job- and after some training became a private investigator. Parodise is in need of a skilled junior PI right now. Someone killed the Big Bad Wolf....

One day Melrin awakes in a strange world. He has no idea where he is or how he got there. And so it is his task to find out where he is and why he is there and how he can make the return to his own world... "Melrin" looks like a console style RPG, but is in fact a typical point'n click adventure made with the AGS engine. The game is not too challenging (most of the puzzles are easy to solve), but the graphics, the music and the atmosphere are fine and so you can spend some...

The game won awards at the link page, for best puzzle of 2005 and best short game of 2005. It is truly worth a look, and you won't regret playing it.

You play Jack O'Neall of SG-1. You are coming out of yet another foreign stargate, and need to figure out what happened on this planet, and try and stop Anubis. The game is unfortunately very short even though it is categorized as a medium length game. It is however very beautifully made, and the story line is well thought up. You cant wait to see what happens next, once you enter more locations. If you ever played LucasArts' The Dig, and liked it, then you will most likely feel very good about...

Once again we find Trilby (real name unknown) in a situation which cannot be fully explained without trying the game. If you have played the other games with Trilby you know what I am talking about: 5 Days a Stranger, 7 Days a Skeptic, and after Trilby's Notes, 6 Days a Sacrifice. Yahtzee has also done other games, so it is indeed worth keeping an eye on him. The interface in Trilby's Notes is different from the first two adventures before this. They were point and clicks but this one is in the...

When washed out cop turned private dick Burak Güney gets a case to investigate the disappearance of three teenage campers, little does he know that not only will his own painful past come back to haunt him, but he will be Lost in the Nightmare. While this has the trappings of an adventure game, it is really an illustrated story book with a ripped musical score to accompany it. A very disturbing story, where the developer drew on his own tortured past and paranoia to create truly memorable...

It is a dark and stormy night with the light of the streets below flowing up against the buildings like waves on a beach destined to die a quick death as their bodies spread out onto the beach.. Just like the body lying in your office with a case... A case of the crabs... This film-noir game is a Java game, and has so much mood that you feel yourself gliding down in the chair, wanting to light up a cigarette and talk about dames and trouble... The game is rather short as are many freeware...

You play Andrew Gourdo, a uni student who has just been dumped by his girlfriend. And of course he has nothing better to do than asking his best friend (who calls himself "Dr. Love") what he should do to get her back. And you can be sure that he comes up with an idea that makes the whole situation worse... "Chick Chaser" is a romantic comedy adventure game in the tradition of Sierra's "Leisure Suit Larry" games. The puzzles are hard but fair and there are several...

After the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy setting of Revolution's first game, Lure of the Temptress, Revolution decided to go down a completely different avenue with its second adventure game, Beneath a Steel Sky, that of Science Fiction. A bleak vision of the future was imagined, where mind control and medical science combined forces to repress the populace. Leading comic artist, Dave Gibbons, joined the design team to visualize this desperate landscape. The result, released in 1994, was the cult...

Ever woken up in the middle of the night to find you've been kidnapped... and so's your bedroom? Ever had to fend for yourself in the face of strangely hypnotic music, alien doctors, talking computers a-plenty and half-finished bathrooms? Ever found something unpleasant in a burger? If so, Out Of Order should play like any other day in your life. Otherwise, it's an experience not to be missed. If out of chaos comes order, what comes Out Of Order?

This game is another game from developer Mark Darin who brought us the Nick Bounty adventures (Case of the crabs and Goat in the grey fedora). His games are always worth a play, and they always have a notable main character. Unfortunately the games are not very long, as they can take a person between one and three hours max to complete. This game has some very weird puzzles which gives it extra longevity. Developers description: It is gonna take a superhero to save the day... Unfortunately Ed...

The enclave maintains no diplomatic relationship with the surrounding so-called 'Republic of Austria' or with the Fortress 'European Union'. The downfall of her motherland -- the Soviet Union -- in the early 1990s had a particularly bad effect on the country's economic situation. It is a great challenge to secure survival for the small but proud confederation. External...

Back in the good old times of computer gaming, LucasArts developed some of the best and funniest adventure games ever made. One of them was "Sam & Max: Hit the Road" (based on the comics by Steve Purcell) which was published in 1993. The main characters were a cynical dog named Sam and his psychopathic, gun-loving lagomorph partner Max, both members of an obscure police squad called Freelance Police. The game soon got cult status, because of it's bizarre story and the anarchic and...

Twenty years ago today... ...Lucasfilm Games released the game "Maniac Mansion" that became a milestone in in the history of adventure games. It introduced a new revolutionary gameplay (Point'n Click) to the genre as well as the possibility of multiple user-selectable characters and multiple possible endings (depending from the abilities and decisions of the characters you choose in the beginning of the game) and a certain kind of humour that dominated the genre for some years....
